There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. I want to thank Lauren S. I wholeheartedly concur; in 68 poems in this spare, yet piercing novel in verse, the author was scheduled to speak at Matthew Shepard's college and found out just before about the savage beating this young man received. Leslea Newman kept her keynote engagement and spoke and wept at the sheer horror of this hate crime toward an innocent victim who succumbs to death 5 days later. Newman has taken many elements of Matthew Shepard's last hours and imagined what may have been; the road, the fence he was lashed to, the biker, the murderers, the pistol, the deer and so much more.
This book is a tribute to Matthew Shepard who died as a result of a hate crime at the hands of gay haters. This book is also a history lesson that every child, young adult and reader needs to explore because in the reading of this book, you will be changed. This book needs to be read by everyone. I especially gained even more knowledge through the author's introduction, her epilogue, her afterword, notes, explanation of poetic forms and resources.
Newman brings sympathy, anger, sorrow, and compassion to each and every word in this book. I love this one. I am a visual artist and do not express myself with words very well. That's one of the reasons I enjoy reading is finding beauty in words and the storytelling. The foreshadowing and mood setting with word choice. This is a different but beautiful art form.
Poetry with iambic pentameter and rhyme schemes that I cannot figure out make it hard for me to get the beauty of the roll, the stops of the word. Concrete poems I understand, dual voice poems check, Haikus gotcha. But when it is important to a verse novel for me to understand the rhyming pattern and the emphasis of words, I feel like I lose some of the beauty reading gives me since I miss out on emphasis that I can later going back understand was foreshadowing to set the mood. This book uses multiple types of poetry to tell basically a single paige point of view of someone or something that was present of affected by this hate crime.
And while some do have the elements I don't like, the author has given an index of the poems numbered and described how the poem works in its place and what kind of poem it is. I recommend waiting till the end to look for ones you don't understand. It might breakup the thoughts and flows between poems. So, this verse novel gives the events of a tragic murder of a gay boy named Matthew Shepard. I begins before he is killed, what he is thinking about in the club, when he is beaten and tied to a fencepost and ultimately dies.
Multiple viewpoints are given throughout the book. What the stars saw, what the mothers of others felt for their sons. The fence that so sadly had to hold him up And the mourning and fall out from a murder of hate. The sentencing, the hate-groups that agree Newman's diary of poems runs up and down the dial of viewpoints and emotions telling the feeling of many people -- and some other beings and non-beings as well -- surrounding the torture and murder of Matthew Shepard, the young gay student. But here's the deal: These poem spring out of horror, and I would never have purchased the book had I not had the opportunity to look through it first a friend's copy.
One finishes the collection which can also be read piecemeal feeling more encouraged and empowered than horrified. Bravo to Newman for accomplishing the impossible and demonstrating how something beautiful can come out of something unspeakable. I almost wish I was still teaching so I could use this book during Poetry Month.
Not only has Newman written some beautiful poems, but she also used a wide variety of poetic forms and styles. This book was so amazingly excellent. I'm undecided about whether I should donate this book so others can share in it, or if I should just keep it under my pillow.

I haven't had a chance to read the book, but Leslea Newman visited my college and did a reading from this book. I was lucky enough to have her sign my copy. It was a very moving book and the imagery is incredible.
I highly recommend the book. September Mourning played some one-off shows in the California area while being shopped to labels. Later in September Mourning was signed to Virgin Records.
